Freedom Socialist Party is hosting a discussion on 27 January in Melbourne, Australia as part of the national/international day of action. On 9 November, Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, announced an “expert panel” will be set up to “lead a national discussion and broad consultation” around plans for a referendum to recognise Aboriginal Australians in the Constitution. How can the Aboriginal rights movement make sure the result is a step forward? The Freedom Socialist Party will decide what we think. We welcome supporters and guests to join in this discussion. The meeting will also feature a special screening of Jess Sundin, the Minneapolis Activist Targeted by the FBI, talking about the morning her home was raided. She’ll discuss the emergence of a movement determined to stop these witchhunts. In December, the FBI delivered 9 new subpoenas in Chicago to anti-war and Palestine solidarity activists, bringing the number subpoenaed to 23. The 9 have been ordered to appear at a Grand Jury in Chicago on January 25. The Committee to Stop FBI Repression is calling for protests across the U.S. and around the world to show our solidarity. Come and find out more and show your support. Dinner served at 6:30 pm for an $8 donation. The meeting will be held at Solidarity Salon (address and travel information is above.)
